I didn't see this in the list of threads, but it seems significant that Jason Kidd is now part owner (http://espn.go.com/new-york/nba/story/_/id/9633845/jason-kidd-buy-stake-brooklyn-nets-jay-z) and coach of the Brooklyn Nets.


According to a NetsDaily report, the value of the share being bought by Kidd is $500,000 and represents one-sixth of 1 percent ownership of the team.

It's obviously not going to have an impact on the team beyond his coaching ability, and I don't think it will prevent Prokhorov from firing him if he does a bad job. I have an idea that Kidd will be a fairly smart coach, but I wonder if he'll be the next Avery Johnson.

He'll last 1 year then move to the front office.

You can be a coach and part owner, similar to Flip Saunders and the Timberwolves.

You can't be a player and part owner.

Can you believe he bought out Jay Z's stake for $500k? It was barely a 10th of a percent right? Could you imagine how much a serious stake in the Nets would cost now?

He bought Jay Zs share. People didn't realize he owned almost none of that team.

Jay-Z had to sell because you can't be an agent and a part-owner. He represents Durant, so that would be a huge conflict of interest.

It's only a matter of time before people start yelling shenanigans when Durant is in BK in 2016.

What I lol about is the fact that Jigga owned 1/16 of 1%. Are you F'ing kidding me. I mean they played that pretty well when he became part owner to get the publicity but I didn't even know one could have such little ownership.
